Last Wednesday, New York Fashion Week held one quite innovative fashion show. It was inspired by the TV series Project Runway. The competition's contestants were given a challenge where they had to create couture pieces using material from Subway restaurants.
From Subway napkins, to cups and bags, the contestants impressed the crowd immensely with their creativity and limited resources.
Several celebrities judged the competition, including Mel B, a.k.a Scary Spice!- and she too was extremely impressed with the designers' pieces.
The winner of the competition, Danilo Gabrielli is an Italian designer who moved to New York City in order to pursue his dreams in the fashion industry. Gabrielli's collections include elegant and luxurious pieces for women.
Gabrielli, along with the other contestants put on fabulous show. And Subway's really starting to think out of the box with their advertising techniques!

Anyone who grew up in Montreal knows that it is truly a one of a kind city. There may be some struggles we all face, but all those negatives don’t trump over the positives. However, it is pretty funny to laugh at all the Montreal problems we experience especially the #stmproblems. So, I have compiled this article to share with you all the #stmproblems we all know too well!
On Twitter and Instagram, you can actually search the hashtag #stmproblems and laugh at how true all these problems are and how relatable these tweets can be! So, here are 25 problems that all Montrealer’s share on the STM according to #stmproblems!
Just witnessed a woman bring her own chair in the metro #stmproblems
The other day I took the metro and I was staring out the window, trying not to make eye contact with people's reflections (just metro things), when I had a thought.
We paint massive murals every year in Montreal for MuralFest, but most people never get to see them unless you live in those neighborhoods.
So if you're going to paint murals, then why not paint them on the walls that are seen by the most amount of people?
I'm talking about those long boring grey tunnel walls in the Montreal metro system.
Think about it, we decorate the hell out of our stations, but we never actually bother with the tunnels. And why not?
Any street artist who would paint a mural in the tunnel would automatically have the most seen mural in the city. It seems crazy that we HAVEN'T done this yet.
And I know what you're thinking.
The metro zips by too fast to be able to look at the murals, but you're wrong.
First of all, if we wanted to paint classic murals like the ones we have all over the city, we could just put those at the start and at the end of the tunnels so you can see them as the train takes off and you can also admire them while standing on the platform.
As for the rest of the tunnels, I've thought of a few solutions.
1. Psychedelic Tunnel
Remember that boat scene in Willy Wonka when they go though that crazy colorful tunnel? A few bright multi-colored stripes and we can easily turn any metro tunnel into a magical psychedelic ride.
2. Star Wars
We don't even need multiple colors to make this happen. We could paint thick white lines at the start of the tunnel that gradually get thinner and thinner to give the illusion we're entering light speed on board the millennium falcon.
3. Flip-Book Movies
Although this idea would be more difficult to accomplish, it would totally be worth it. If we could print out a movie reel and paste all the images in sequence inside the tunnel, then it would create a giant flip-book and you could actually watch a silent movie while you're zipping between stations.
Chicago did something kind of similar, except they put the image on the train itself so people waiting in the station would have the illusion of watching an Olympic athlete sprinting. This is the same concept, only reversed.
It's really not that far fetched of an idea and it could even turn our metro into a tourist attraction if done properly.
We didn't put in those bigger windows in the new AZUR trains for nothing. We might as well have something pretty to stare at.
